MNRR: Introducing the "new" Lakeview Switcher

 

August 23, 2008

 

On this day in history, Modoc Northern Railroad took receipt of their latest acquisition, former BNSF SW1000 number 3647.  Here we see the 700 escorting it onto the property as we capture them rounding the south curve of the Texum wye (map location).

Once past the Tingley Road grade crossing, 3647 is fueled by a waiting tanker truck from a local fuel distributor.

 

Threatening storm greets the 3647 at Texum
